Climbed SteriStrip and Old Dogs New Picks this afternoon. SteriStrip is fat and can be climbed on all screws (stubbies not necessary). Both lines are wet/dripping but it is possible to keep your ropes fairly dry. Temperatures were -2 at 11:00AM and +1 at 5:00PM. Sky was overcast most of the day with the occasional broken period. No precipitation through the day, light westerly winds, no blowing snow observed off the ridge tops. There was a approximately 10-15 of snow on the ground (fan of avi path 35.8).
